2" Great White Shark Tooth

I dug this out about 10 feet from where I found the little meg today. When I flipped it out, I couldn't tell if the root was intact, so I didn't know if it was awesome or not. When I cleaned it up later, though, it turned out to be in an incredible state of preservation. We seldom find great white teeth at land sites with intact roots. For some reason, they are almost always chewed up or gone. This one escaped that fate, thank goodness. Every serration, including the tip, it sharp. The root is great, and so is the color. - what a little gem!
